"I make movies and TV shows, but I’m curious about everything.” That is how Imagine Entertainment co-founder Brian Grazer describes himself on Twitter. In this Q&A with Charles Fishman, Grazer will discuss how his curiosity led him to meetings with figures like Jonas Salk and Isaac Asimov. These conversations often sparked insights and ideas that ultimately led to classic films like Splash and A Beautiful Mind.

In his new book called "A Curious Mind" co-authored with Fishman, Brian Grazer explains how an inquisitive mindset can transform your personal and professional life and lead to creative breakthroughs.
